Dry Eyes with Contact Lenses

Posted by CooperVision on Tuesday, February 25, 2014


Most contact lens fitters agree that a primary reason for a patient discontinuing contact lens wear is discomfort due to ‘dryness’.  Whether the cause is due to evaporative or aqueous deficient dry eye is irrelevant to the patient.  If a lens is uncomfortable,wearing will cease.

Addressing the underlying reasons for dryness while wearing lenses is of paramount importance to creating successful contact lens wear.  However, there are some contact lens options that may improve a patient’s wearing experience.

For patients with dryness symptoms, changing modality, material or care regimen may provide enough of a benefit to allow the patient to gain an increase in the number of hours of comfortable wear.  If a patient exhibits minimal dryness, contact lens specific rewetting drops may provide some relief and extend wearing time.  Of most value is fitting the patient with a lens that has minimal dehydration such as Proclear.  Proclear lenses are made with the only material cleared by the U.S. FDA for the claim. These lenses may provide improved comfort for contact lens wearers who experience mild discomfort or symptoms related to dryness during lens wear associated with Evaporative Tear Deficiency or Aqueous Tear Deficiency (non-Sjogren’s only) and are a good option for patients experiencing dryness while wearing lenses.

I don't personally wear them, but I do see how they can be hard to wear with dryness of the eyes. They make some products to help with it, but some people just don't feel the need sometimes!

Great article!

Buying lenses online seems to be a alot cheaper and something im looking into. Supposedly 50% of contact lens wearers buy online according to www.lenscompare.co.uk. It's abit worrying. Opticians really need to take this onboard and teach contact lens users to be safe and stay in touch with them for regular checkups etc.
